On the lyrical themes of the upcoming album ‘What Remained’

As you may already know, our upcoming album “What Remained” is not a concept album per se. Most songs, however, share a common theme. Our possible -or should I say- our probable bleak future.

We did not plan this theme for the entire album from the beginning. It somehow developed in that direction over time. Maybe our minds, like the minds of many, are troubled today more than ever with the outcome of our actions in a more or less distant future. Each song deals with a different perspective on the vast topic of our collective future, the ones being more vague, leaving a lot of room for interpretation, the others being more specific, their message directly palpable. 

We are aware that we won’t in any way reinvent the wheel by theming an album with dystopian and even post-apocalyptic themes. It’s merely our statement that we -as human beings- are concerned about the ongoings in a world that echoes slowly but surely in the global events, that we have to rethink our ways and if we want to stay here for longer, we have to tread new paths and search for new solutions. 

An admittedly dark-themed album like this is only the result of too much musings on such distressing topics.

Giving nothing further away for now, for those who are interested to know more about the lyrical aspect of the album, you’ll have the possibility of diving into the lyrics once the release.

Cheers,

Chris

What remained: release date and show

We’re stoked to finally announce that our upcoming album “What remained” will be released on June 3rd. To celebrate the release, we will play a special release show at Rockhal in Belval (L). With “What remained“ we will release our second full-length studio album.

Without being a concept album, “What remained” explores the end of humanity and takes the audience to a musical journey into the tides of fate. In a dystopic world, humanity is on the verge of extinction, machines have taken over. But is it really the machines, or rather those who control them? And is there a life outside the dystopian illusions, in solitude, amidst an exhausted, dismissive nature?

For this special release show we’ll be supported by our friends from Pleasing who will take you on a journey into the depths of human emotions and the human mind.

Do not miss this out-of-the-ordinary release show! Buy your tickets here.

Many thanks to the Rocklab and the Rockhal team for making this possible!

Back from Camp Sleepy

We are back from 1 week in our pre-production camp!

We have done the pre-production for 6 songs of the upcoming record. Among those songs are Slave and Leviathan. You might already know those two from our last few shows. We’ll play the brand new tracks live as soon as we can!


Camp Sleepy. For real!

Well it’s about time to hitch up our knickers and start working. That’s why we gonna do a really fun band camp from 26th October to 4th November.

We gonna barricade ourselves in a secret place for one week, where we can work 24/7 on new songs! This means we gonna do a preproduction of already existing new material and write brand new songs that we’ll play on the following shows. So yes, we start getting serious concerning a first full length album in 2013.

Great news, isn’t it?

We’ll try to do a little report on what we do in Camp Sleepy during that one week 😉 So stay tuned for some news after the 4th November.

Oh, and by the way, don’t forget to come to our show on 20th October at Café Nicola in Fennange! You don’t really care about that wedding, don’t you?
